Black Cats Get Best Halloween Gift Ever

Today, it’s good luck to be a black cat or the guardian of one. That’s because PETA’s “Spay and Neuter Immediately, Please” (SNIP) mobile clinic will be performing spay or neuter surgeries on black cats all day free of charge.

Approximately three dozen black cats will have the good fortune of never having to give birth to litters of kittens who could end up unwanted, homeless, neglected, abandoned on the streets, or euthanized at a shelter for lack of a good home. The sterilized cats themselves will be immune to uterine, ovarian, and testicular cancer and less likely to suffer from other cancers of the reproductive system, such as prostate and breast cancer (yes, cats and dogs get those too). Altered cats are also less likely to roam, mark their territory with urine, get into fights, or become infected with deadly contagious diseases such as feline leukemia and feline AIDS.

And just a reminder if you have a cat, black or otherwise: You should never let your precious bundle of purrrfection outside alone, especially around Halloween. Cruel people do horrible things to cats—especially black ones—at this time of year (and the rest of the year too).

Just keepin’ it real,
Sunny

    Isn’t that a bit ‘colourist’ to only give them to black cats?! ;o)

    I am the proud owner of a beautiful black cat and I couldn’t imagine him being hurt this halloween for entertainment. God bless PETA for doing this.
